Hello loves and welcome back. Today I have some seriously overdue swatches to share with you. I knew I was behind but I didn't realize that these had been sitting under my desk since July, oops. You've probably already seen these, but indulge me will ya:

Get ready to hit the books and go back to school in style with the latest collection for Back To School from SinfulColors, A Class Act. The extensive array of fresh shades are perfectly on-trend with the latest fall fashions and will ensure that your mani is top of the class. Dusty pastels and pops of color come in a demi-matte finish that feels soft yet looks striking and is deserving of nothing but straight A's.  Denim blues and ready-to-burst brights capture an effortlessly cool and rebellious vibe, while shimmering silvers, purples and teals with eye catching 3D glitters look just as chic during a night out on the town as they do in class the next day. These should already be in Walgreens and other major retailers for $1.99. 

I've decided to share the demi-matte shades first as to not make the post too long. Formulas were half and half with the four I received. The cream shades were perfect, not too thick or thin and had good pigmentation.The jelly-ish shades were a little thin, sheer and took forever to completely dry (we'll get into that a little later). I used LA Colors Top Coat for some swatches. 

Truth or Lavendare: a demi-matte creamy lavender. I love lavender polishes and this one is no exception. I was expecting to need atleast three coats with this so I was so pleased that I only needed two. It could be a little streaky if you are heavy handed in your application though.
With topcoat:

Chalk It Up: a saturated, demi-matte pistachio green. This one did nothing for me in the bottle but I am in love with it on the nails. Another creamy two coater. It makes me crave some Ben & Jerrys Pistachio Pistachio lol. 
With topcoat:

RADient: a vibrant raspberry with a demi-matte finish. This one had a sort of jelly-ish formula, along with the next. It was super sheer and a little thin but not anything problematic. I needed three coats for this one but the color is worth it. I know one blogger got some stains with this one but I didn't, just be aware that it is possible though. 
With topcoat:

Hazed: a subdued violet with a demi-matte finish. This is another one that I wasn't quite sure how I felt about it in the bottle but I really enjoyed it on the nails. Just like RADient it was thin and needed three coats. 
This one doesn't have a topcoated swatch because I got called away while swatching, which brings me to dry time. I'm not sure about the others entirely but Dazed never fully seemed to dry on me. I wore it for a good 12 hours (even overnight) and I was still able to dent it before I removed it. I wish now I had thought to take a pic of how bad it looked. 

Although I'm not sure if I'll wear them in their natural states I really do like these shades so I'll just make sure to topcoat them. What do you ladies think? Ill be back later this week with a few more shades from this collection. As always, thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed :)
